Just a reminder that this Sunday, June 1, from noon to 5 p.m., Sheepshead Bay Road will be turned into an outdoor amusement and shopping destination.
The streets will be closed to traffic and opened up for a block party like atmosphere at Sheepshead Stroll, with fun activities, games, contests and more. Businesses on Sheepshead Bay Road, between the subway station and Emmons Avenue, will be allowed to turn their stores inside out, taking over the sidewalks in front of their establishments for outdoor cafes, restaurants and beer gardens. There’ll be no such thing as window shopping, as clothing stores and other retailers put their merchandise out on display.
The Department of Transportation will bring additional tables and chairs for anyone to sit and enjoy the good weather, and several businesses are bringing in live entertainment. See the above flier for more information.
Just a word of note: buses will be rerouted to adjacent streets, and some side streets will be closed off to traffic as well. There will be parking in muni-lots and elsewhere, but it’ll be beautiful weather out, so walk it if you can!
